Frequently Asked Questions

Reported results for the May 2018 OSCE were 89% overall; reported results for the July 2018 MCT were 72%. (Kaplan's global rates were 72/73% for the two OSCE groups; 50% for MCT.) Pass rates have been steadily increasing since our introduction of Live Tuition.  Find out more

Reported results for the November 2017 OSCE were 73% overall; reported results for the January 2018 MCT were 78%. (Kaplan's global rates were 63/51% for the two OSCE groups; 46% for MCT.)

As Kaplan only releases results directly to the delegates, we can base our pass rates solely on the actual reported data collected from our delegates. It is impossible to obtain this information any other way. The total number of delegates sitting the exam or which provider they studied with are not released.

While other providers might base their numbers on assumptions, we only report the actual results, giving you 100% transparency and REAL results.

Be very careful with this. Less than 25% of what is included in those books is actually tested. Please also note that LPC standards are not the same as for the OSCE.

The OSCE mimics your first day in an office. It tests everything from your computer research skills to evaluating your client comportment, using criteria as banal as a 'handshake'.

Most people require an average of 80-120 hours.

YES.  All clients are invited to attend as many classroom sessions as they'd like.

Each session includes three stations to practice interviews and three stations to practice advocacy. Lecturers require delegates to 'play' both roles, as Solicitor and as Actor, and give immediate feedback.

Delegates score higher on OSCE I when they understand how Actors are instructed and how their role is designed.

YES.  We have 120+ exercises in Writing, Drafting and Research, including 100+ stations with video guidance. (eg. the lecturer reviews the facts, suggests relevant legal tests and procedures, and provides a sample answer with sentence by sentence guidance.)

YES.  Our training platform is designed to mimic the exact format of the exam. Two to three weeks before the exam, during the revision sessions, you will perform at ALL 18 stations (just as you will be required to do on the actual exam) with immediate feedback from our tutors.

QLTT International, the forerunner of QLTS Advantage, was developed in 2001 by six New York Law School Professors and has since helped train thousands of attorneys from around the world qualify as English Solicitors. In 2010, following the SRA's expanded syllabus and changed format of the new transfer exam (QLTS), the Law Professors developed the on-line course materials based on documents originally supplied by City Law School.
